    The events of 2020 have demonstrated why it is important for supply management to have strategies to manage both everyday and exceptional risks. To optimize business results, risk must be systematically identified, analyzed and assessed through the global supply chain in terms of impact and probability and supply management must generate options to reduce or mitigate the perceived risks. Led by an ISM subject matter expert, this course covers risk management through weekly webinars and daily, self-paced training modules that consist of online reading, multimedia, knowledge checks and practical application activities. Join us for this Guided Learning to expand your knowledge of risk management so you can identify, analyze and assess risk in the global supply chain.
